Inhibition of Escherichia coli invasion into bovine mammary epithelial cells previously infected by Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis.

Conclusion: These findings suggest that MAP-positive cows could be more resistant to E. coli infection, but when infected, could rapidly translocate E. coli to the subepithelial region. PMID: 31939335 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: Available online 20 February 2020Source: Microbial PathogenesisAuthor(s): Ying Liu, Xi Tan, Haojin Cheng, Jie Gong, Yong Zhang, Daibin Wang, Wei DingAbstractCold shock proteins (Csps) are small and highly conserved proteins that have target RNA- and DNA-binding activities. Csps play roles in different cellular processes and show functional redundancy. Ralstonia solanacearum, the agent of bacterial wilt, has 4 or 5 Csps based on genome analysis. However, the functions of all Csps in R. solanacearum remain unclear. According to phylogenetic analysis, the Csps from R. solanacearum are clustered into a group ...

Authors: Akter S, Huq MA Abstract The present study highlights the biological synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) using Sphingobium sp. MAH-11 and also their antibacterial mechanisms against drug-resistant pathogenic microorganisms. The nanoparticle synthesis method used in this study was reliable, facile, rapid, cost-effective and ecofriendly. The AgNPs exhibited the highest absorbance at 423 nm. The TEM image expressed spherical shape of AgNPs and the size of synthesized AgNPs was 7-22 nm. The selected area diffraction (SAED) pattern and XRD spectrum revealed the crystalline structure of AgNPs...

AbstractBarrett ’s oesophagus (BE) has been associated with an increased risk of both colorectal adenomas and colorectal cancer. A recent investigation reported a high frequency of BE in patients with adenomatous polyposis coli (APC)-associated polyposis (FAP). The aim of the present study is to evaluate the prevalence of BE in a large cohort of patients withMUTYH-associated polyposis (MAP) andAPC-associated adenomatous polyposis. Patients with a genetically confirmed diagnosis of familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) or MAP were selected and upper gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy reports, pathology reports of upper GI...

MastiAbstractEthyl vanillin (EV) incorporated chitosan (CS)/poly(vinyl alcohol)(PVA) blend films of various ratios (1:3, 1:1 and 3:1) were prepared by solvent casting technique. The effect of EV on the mechanical, structural, barrier, optical, food compatibility and antibacterial properties of the CS/PVA films were investigated. Mechanical properties showed that addition of EV increased tensile strength of CPEV-1, CPEV-2 and CPEV-3 films ...

This study demonstrated that there was a higher abundance of sRNA in the pig farm WWTPs and 52 sRNAs were detected. The sRNAs were mainly present in Proteobacteria and Firmicutes, including the potential human pathogenic bacteria (HPB) (Escherichia, Shigella, Bordetella and Morganella), crop pathogen (Pectobacterium) and denitrifying bacteria (Zobellella). And the sRNAs were involved in the bacterial functional activities such as translation, transcription, drug resistance, membrane transport and amino acid metabolism. In addition, most sRNAs had a higher abundance in anoxic tanks which contained a higher abundance of the ...

In this study, an analysis of the potential mechanism underlying photocatalytic disinfection was performed based on integrated metabolic networks and transcriptional data. Two sets of RNA-seq data (wild type and a photocatalysis-resistant mutant mediated by titanium dioxide (TiO2)) were processed to constrain the genome scale metabolic models (GSMM) of E. coli. By analyzing the metabolic network, the differential metabolic flux of every reaction was computed in constrained GSMM, and several significantly differential metabolic fluxes in reactions were extracted and analyzed. Most of these reactions were involved in the tra...

The field of Alzheimer's disease research is in the midst of a slow-moving and consequential debate over the role of infection in the development of the condition. The fundamental question is this: in the absence of genetic variants that raise risk, why do only some people progress to full blown Alzheimer's disease? The presence - in only some people - of sufficient degrees of persistent infection is one possible answer to that question. Candidates include herpesviruses, oral bacteria such as P. gingivalis, lyme disease spirochetes, and others. Alzheimer's is a condition characterized by amyloid-β aggregation i...
